You could not go wrong with either city but I think TLH has got Gainesville beat. My 2 cents,

I asked about Gainesville because the OP stated her boyfriend lived in Gainesville.

I am more familiar with Gainesville, I live between Jax and Gainesville and GNV is my moms hometown. I had a 3 week assignment working in Tallahassee several years ago and really liked the Tallahassee area.

It's amazing how love can invite us to stretch While I would describe myself as very liberal and left-leaning, I also value open-mindedness and understanding of the shared human values that underlie our different viewpoints.

Default Another suggestion

Treelover, you might also want to look in areas not too far from the Unitarian Universalist church on Meridian. You would be able to meet up with like-minded, progressive individuals there...compare notes, etc. The local chapter of Audobon Society meets there as well.

I prefer Tally to G'ville because it's so much prettier! I just like the way it is laid out. Lovely neighborhoods with lots of trees, and I also like the way the trees have been preserved even with an overabundance of development. You're just gonna have that development in Florida, no way around it. But at least Tally tries not to cut every single tree down, unlike the area in North Florida that my husband and I moved away from last year.

So grateful for all of your thoughtful replies, TD, jwolfer, Shrimpngrits, and trobesmom.

I indeed came to visit Tallahassee recently, and fell in love with the huge trees and beautiful parks. I was shocked at the amount of ugly development as well. It seems that there's a pretty hodge-podge city development plan as a whole, but the beautiful, tree-filled, green parts make up for it. Chapman Park simply blew me away.

As it turns out, my partner is moving with me to Tallahassee now, so Gainesville is no longer a possibility, making the moving process a wee bit simpler.

Thanks, everyone, for your comments of support. I am truly grateful.
